Big Mushy Happy Lump
Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection | Sarah Andersen
Sarah Andersen's hugely popular, world-famous Sarah's Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals. In addition to the most recent Sarah's Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah's real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah's Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.

Absolutely loved this book from beginning to end! Funny all the way through and a lot of the comics hit home. I especially loved towards the end about dealing with anxiety and I must try and say the mantra “I don't care“ and picture the big buff guy every single time. Ha! Looking forward to reading her other books in this series.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Anderson‘s follow-up to her debut “Adulthood is a Myth” is just as funny and relatable as the first of this series. Her humor is something I always enjoy, and I look forward to re-reading the next book in this series.

I love these. I read the others a while ago, but for whatever reason this one was not available. So glad to finally read it.

Second book for Read O Rama complete. 128 pages. Loved this collection even more than her first one. I'd seen a few of the comics online but a lot were new to me.

I find her comics so relatable, esp this collection.

More of her personal life is revealed as well. I find her art style to be adorable and gets the point across well.

5⭐

I very much relate to Sarah‘s Scribbles. This collection is mostly about clothes, pets, relationships, and social anxiety.

I was hovering near a 4⭐️ rating until I got to the second half of the book, with the author going into detail about her being introverted and having social anxiety and being socially awkward. I swear, she is me! Love this series. Highly recommended for when you need a quick pick-me-up. 5⭐️

From one introverted, anxious, over-thinker, thank you Sarah Andersen for understanding our kind. This was another enjoyable, and completely relatable little collection.

Cute. I liked it better than the first one. Maybe I am in a better place; but I think, she is. In this one she describes how she works on her problems, not just what problems she has. I don‘t think she is funny, but certainly light-hearted and self-aware. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

This was pretty much so and so compared to Sarah's first book Adulthood is a Myth which I absolutely loved. Some were really lame and I could not relate with most of them. Although a few were good like the ones with books and cats.
2.5/5

A nice, warm fuzzy of a comics collection (complete with fuzzy writing on the cover!). This volume ends with a few essays illustrated by comics - “The Sweater Thief” and “I Don‘t Know How to Be a Person” are excellent.
